Note; 

Some of the readers of this pamphlet may wonder that it is not more 
complete , but few may appreciate the many difficulties encountered in its 
compilation. Much of the material was very difficult to obtain and some of 
it arrived very late. More cuts would have been included and better ones 
in some cases, could they have been obtained, but many of the soldiers 
whose records appear herein , never had any kind of likeness made, while 
others had only one, and frequently that one very poor, and very hard 
to copy. Amateur work will account for some other defects.
